What's new this week

Have you been checking out BEA's site - did you notice that there will be 500 authors that we will be able to meet and some of the 500 authors will be autographing books! Others will be sharing breakfast (no food fights please!) and words of wisdom with us from the Author Stages and booths.

If you haven't already noticed the Special Events schedule here's the link: check it out and plan your visit to this year's Book Expo America.

Registered Librarians have special rates for the individual ($95 for a three day pass or $60 for a day pass) and group discounts are also available - so bring a group to share in the fun - email Diana Press to learn more and sign up for the group discount at!

I'm off to the Public Library Association conference in Portland, OR. next week. I plan to check in at the Book Expo America Booth while at PLA to find out more about this year's BEA convention in New York. Why don't you stop by and check BEA out too.

Congratulations, you are a winner!

I am so happy to be traveling back to the east coast this May for Book Expo America - especially since I have never experienced Book Expo America in New York City. My first trip to Book Expo America took place here in Los Angeles and I didn't get to spend as much time checking things out due to having to work during their visit. However, this year I get to take part in the fun from Tuesday, May 25th through to Thursday, May 27th.

Who wouldn't want to hang out with other librarians, authors, publishers and especially the BOOKS! So come join in the fun and spend some time in New York at Book Expo America, bring a friend and follow my adventures as the BEA blogging librarian.
